The boys are ecstatic, the parents, not so much.

Coming home from taking Toby to the the vet this morning, Evan spied one of these in the front yard, right next to the house.



As he aspires to be a herpetologist when he grows up, he was excited at the prospect of finally, maybe having a reptile for a pet. Uh, no. Not gonna happen.

So, I was able to identify it as a brown snake, so that I now know for sure it isn't poisonous, and that it is nearly full grown, if not full grown, at approximately 10 inches.

The dilemma, should you be wondering, is what to do with it now. Kill it, keep it or release it. I'd rather not kill it, but I'd also rather not have hundreds of little brown snakes chillin' at the crib, yo.

Well, it only eats slugs, earth worms and snails, so maybe it won't be so bad if we do have a few around.

EDIT: It's freeee! More later with pics of the boys holding it.
